At Opus 40, our world-famous nonprofit sculpture park and museum in the heart of the Hudson Valley, we welcome guests four days a week from May through November, as well as host educational field trips, guided tours and destination weddings all year long. We also offer nature walks led by Audubon educators, art workshops and live music and theatre performances — all with the majestic Catskill Mountains as the backdrop.
In 2019, 15,000 of you visited from the Hudson Valley, New York City, and across the state, country and world, while 4,000 more experienced our free community programs. Meanwhile, guided by our mission to serve as the area’s premier destination for arts, culture and nature enthusiasts, we invested significant resources in our infrastructure, working with six expert stonemasons to develop a three-year plan for analysis and restoration of our central sculpture, as well as the stone walls on our trails.
In 2020, these same stonemasons will be offering all-ages stone mason tours and workshops as part of our effort to continually expand our programming and improve the Opus 40 experience year after year.
During the 2019-2020 winter offseason, we’ve also worked tirelessly to enhance your experience online, culminating today with the launch of our brand-new website — designed with you in mind.
It’s now easier than ever to book a private group tour or school field trip, purchase tickets for a performance, sign up for a free workshop or event, or reserve our grounds for your wedding or other gathering.
“As a designer and photographer who has enjoyed the exceptional artisanship at Opus 40, I was delighted to have an opportunity to develop a website for this worthy organization,” says Molly Ahearn, founder and president of Full Deck Design. “The site captures the unique experience of visiting firsthand, and includes information for visitors, sponsors and vendors alike.”
Caroline Crumpacker, our Executive Director, agrees. “I’m thrilled about this groundbreaking event in the storied history of Opus 40, as our digital presence now finally represents what it’s like to visit this truly remarkable global phenomenon — and, even more importantly, makes visiting us online a seamless experience, no matter what you’re looking for. We are so grateful to Molly and our marketing team for their hard work, as well as Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, whose grant made this all possible.”
